Primarily Caucasian LEOs, please take note:

Although we totally believe you when you say you're not a racist and "have black friends", you have to anticipate that some of the liberal snowflakes will "blow things all out of proportion" if you give them the opportunity. With that in mind, here are some tips.

---Wear clothing that conceals all Klan, nazi or other white/Christian supremacy tats. Those crowns and swastikas, etc. will be interpreted by the liberal media as indications that you are unfit to serve. Really!

---Avoid wearing Oath Keeper, 3-percenter or similar patches on your uniform or tactical gear. Same reason as above.

---As difficult as this may be, try not to brag on line about how you "thumped" some smartass---"person of color". You won't believe how this will be misconstrued!

---For every 10 or so--"POC"s---that you pull over and roust for "air freshener on rear view mirror", "weaving within the lane", etc., pull over some real American white guy and politely give him a verbal warning. This is so you can say you are "not prejudiced" against those who "drive while black".

See you at our next gathering at you know where. ( No regalia to be worn this time )

For weeks now, the nonsense that "the election was rigged and Trump actually won by a landslide" has

been called "the big lie". It might be appropriate to consider what Ol' Adolph himself said about "the big lie" in "Mein Kampf":

"---in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional

nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves

often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they

would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their

minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation."

I don't think any comment by me is necessary.

This morning, Republican Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson tried to convince Tapper that his

signing of a bill prohibiting trans females to compete in girls sports---even when there were no known instances of that in the state---was justified because that sentiment had "broad public support".

Dude, in Arkansas, I suspect that slavery, the death penalty for homosexuality and mandatory assault rifle ownership have "broad public support"!

"Governor" should be a synonym for "leader", not "weathervane".

'Splain this to me, ok?

We are ok with our kids being required to be vaccinated in order to enroll in school. We accept being told where we can smoke, how fast we can drive and on which side of the highway. We are willing to pee in a cup to prove to our employer we are drug-free and wear a net over our hair or beard if we work with food. BUT,----

----somehow, being required to wear a mask or get a free vaccination in order to protect ourselves, our families, neighbors and co-workers is an outrageous infringement of our personal rights?

I'll wait.

The transient breathtaking beauty of spring prods me to acknowledge that my life is in its

autumn. Just as the fresh clean perfect blooms that now sparkle from meadow to forest floor are so full of promise and possibility, so once was I.

I am not as strong or fast or easy to look at but, hopefully, I have grown in wisdom and tolerance and compassion. Some of my dreams have been realized; some have been abandoned; but, some are still "in process".

I now understand and accept that wisdom requires that we admit how little we know.

Because I no longer take next spring for granted, I will savor this one in a way that the still strong and beautiful cannot.

Since we have had two Moderna shots, we are starting to begin to commence to get ready to maybe

some time take a road trip. But, our routes and destinations are seriously limited.

We don't really want to even stop in states like Tennessee which just passed unlimited no-permit-required firearm carry laws.

We don't want to visit most states which are GOP dominated, especially those like Florida that have "stand your ground" statutes which essentially mean that if it is just me and one of "them" out along the interstate and they don't like my bumper stickers, they can just insist that I assaulted them and shoot me dead.

In general, we don't want to contribute to the economy of any state that voted for Trump.

So, where to go? ( Some day, hopefully. )

The Butt-Head double named Matt

Is praying his buddy won't rat
'Cause if Greenberg eats cheese
And details his sleaze
Ol' Matt will be flat on the mat!

I am sick of hearing Manchin referred to as a "centrist Democrat".

I think I'd better leave it at that.

I guess I have just about reached my limit in dealing with the utter naked STUPIDITY

in which the nation seems awash.

I have just heard a know-it-all speaking to someone who had a reaction to their vaccination say that "Yeah, they wouldn't even test it in RATS, but they will stick it in your arm!"

I just can't be expected to treat these Trump-humping ignoramuses as anything short of an existential threat.

"Be civil?"

Not any more. These people NEED to be offended.

To paraphrase Hawkeye Pierce: "The instrument has yet to be invented that could measure

how little sympathy I have for the people who ignorantly let Trump steal thousands of dollars from each of them."

Most will vote for him again in '24 if he runs.

If they are looking for sympathy, it's in the dictionary between "shit" and "syphilis ".
